This week’s bag features Butternut Squash! Butternut Squash is typically grown during the winter time on the mainland however grows well during spring time here in Hawaii. It grows on a vine and tastes similar to pumpkin. As it gets ripe it gets deeper orange in color and sweet and rich in flavor. It’s a great source of fiber, vitamin C, A & E, magnesium, and potassium.
Butternut Squash may appear intimidating at first but it’s really not! First thing is first, grab a vegetable peeler and take of the skin, just like you would with a carrot. Then grab a large knife and slice the squash in half long ways, through the spine. Next, clean out the seeds and stringy stuff, just like last Halloween’s pumpkin! You can then slice across the squash into bit size pieces. Boom, your squash is prepped and ready for action. Throw in a skillet, throw in the oven, check out the recipes below for more info!
